St Paul’s Cycle Friendly Primary award

St Paul’s Primary School in Whiteinch has recently achieved the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Primary School Award by demonstrating a clear commitment to increasing cycling in the school for pupils, teachers and parents.

The school was assessed against a range of criteria – the school has a cycling champion, an up to date active travel plan, delivers Bikeability Scotland’s Level 2 on road training to the pupils, pupils undertake regular litter picks on the local cycle network and the school has a great cycle shelter too! All clearly demonstrating that they fully deserved this Award.

The school also promotes cycling in the local community by working with De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop and being in involved in the We Go Pedal project to promote and encourage more people to cycle, both of which are run by local environmental charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET).

The European Cycling Challenge 2017 is the biggest cycling event across Europe. The idea is to encourage people to use their bikes as much as possible. It’s about everyday cycling for everyone.

ALL cycling is permitted with the exception of sporting and training events. Whether you are cycling all the way to work, to the station, going to the shops or just enjoying being out on your bike, we want you to take part and record your routes to help improve cycling across the Clyde Valley.

Last year, 52 cities, including Glasgow, joined the Challenge. Over 46,000 people cycled four million kilometres (4,000,000 km) during the month of May. Glasgow finished a respectable 18th with 72,000km recorded with the Glasgow boundary but recorded over 127,750 km in total.

Once again the We Go Pedal team will be pedalling for victory. Last year the We Go Pedal team, which was part of Team Glasgow, had 11 members and thanks to our combined efforts we cycled a total of 1268 kms and we came 14th out of all 74 sub-teams that made up Team Glasgow! So we need more people to sign up to the team!

To join Team We Go Pedal you need to:

  • Download the naviki app
  • Go to Settings > Contests > ECC2017
  • Click the button “I’m Participating” to opt in
  • Click on My Teams, Select “Glasgow City Region”
  • Click on My Teams, Select “Other”, scroll down to “We Go Pedal”
